Non-DLVO colloidal interactions: specific ion effects explained by ion-hydration forces

  • Eli Ruckenstein
  • Marian Manciu


One of the main shortcomings of the traditional DLVO theory is its inability to predict specific ionic effects. These effects are sometimes much stronger than what the excluded volume effects (examined in the previous chapter) can explain.
